Yellow Bird Project

Casey sent me an email to let me know about her great little non-profit initiative, Yellow Bird Project. The project is a collaboration with musicians to raise money for various charities. Bands are asked to contribute original artwork which are turned into t-shirts as a way of raising money for their charity of choice.

Shirts have been designed by The Shins, Broken Social Scene, The New Pornographers, K-Os, The National, Bon Iver, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Wolf Parade, and the list goes on. If you’re looking for a t-shirt why not support a charity while you’re at it –  head over to Yellow Bird!

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
